Dubai Criminal Court sentenced a Sri Lankan to life imprisonment for selling heroin to a policewoman.

BJR, 33, sold 0.130gram of heroin  to the cop.

However, the court acquitted his compatriots MBJ, guard, and JDD, workers, who were accused of helping him in peddling drugs.

The three were arrested folowing a ting operation after the police received a tip-off. The woman police posed as a buyer and approached the main accused and settled to buy the substance for Dh1,700.
